On the First Day of Christmas…

…the Gormogons gave to me:

A Hello Kitty in an orange tree

Over the next twelve days, join us as we share a little holiday cheer with our readers by way of a familiar holiday tune.  We’ll tie days in to various past posts, insights into life in the Castle and maybe a few inside jokes with which you’re just going to have to deal.

As pictured, the first ornament on the tree is Hello Kitty.  ‘Puter pushes through all of us to put it on the tree and stare at it for hours while the rest of us finish the decorating.  The Volgi won’t go near the tree as it is a citrus tree which he fears.  Good thing too, otherwise, I think he might break the fragile ornament while screaming at it, “and yet you scream!”

The Czar and Mandarin don’t know what to make of the scene so the Czar buries himself in his research on future postings and the Mandarin goes back to tinkering on another laser interferometer that induces instantaneous state change in the outer electrons in Xeon molecules.  What he’s doing with it, we’re not sure.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
